Sorry for not posting earlier, but somehow this story got lost. Also the pictures with Bernd on it. He was really upset about it, but all restoring of lost files did not help.
After X-mas we left Thailand and got on a bus to Cambodia (yes we still did not tell about our adventures there). The bus only got us to the border of Thailand and getting across reminded us to our journey to Myanmar. Also that we had to cross the street because the traffic is going on the right side in Cambodia.
We decided to stay at a very special guest house in Siem Reap, Bernd and I got a hint for this special guest house at the border to CambodiaThe Mad Monkey, a guest house for young people offering a pool and a bar at the roof top, sounds good and when we got to see the place it was as great and interesting as described.
In Siem Reap we had the big plan to go to Angkor Wat, the big temple complex. For sure walking won't be a good choice, you can walk around there for hours and still not reach all the temples.
Before starting our tour we found a used but still valid ticket from another traveler at the guest house. There was a picture of the guy on it, but we hoped that for the Asians we Europeans would look like each other. Like it is said from our side about the Asians and the opposite.
And it worked. We got in there without needing to pay.
First we got early in the morning to the Angkor Wat temple, the biggest of the temples. It was told to be very beautiful during the sunrise, unfortunately the sky was cloudy so no special sunrise this time.
After the sunrise we did take a look around in the big complex, must have been amazing being here in the past.
Especially we wanted to take a look around and not only stay at the "entrance" to the temple. At least this fighting with the monkey more made us think about the Jungle Book and start singing King Louies song "oh shubidu i wanna be like you.. ".
At some parts Bernd got scared and did not want to go any further, so we had to go away from the specific place and find another way trhough the ruins, but it did not realy look that dangerous.
